EA Origin, EA’s digital platform is completely inaccessible from Myanmar. The reason is still unknown, but EA is working hard to restore the service.
The news first broke out in Reddit where a user located in Myanmar got an “Access Denied” message when he tried to use Origin. Some people including an EA support volunteer are speculating that EA blocked the service themselves due to the US government’s trade embargo happening in Myanmar.
EA spoke to Polygon and gave them the usual PR response: “We’re working to restore access to Origin for our players in Myanmar. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we’ll share updates on timing as soon as possible”
We will update you on this story as information becomes available.
